TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Eddie Lacy is starting to put the injury questions behind him.
No. 1 Alabama's starting tailback rushed for three touchdowns at Arkansas and 106 yards in the first half against Florida Atlantic after a slow start.
Trent Richardson's successor sat out spring practice to recover from toe surgery, then had a hamstring and ankle injury slow him down late in preseason camp.
He had just 18 carries for 71 yards in the first two games. Lacy says it took a while to get comfortable and stop worrying about his injuries.
Lacy still seems unlikely to put up huge numbers like Richardson and 2009 Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram in a crowded backfield. Freshman T.Y. Yeldon still holds a slight lead in rushing yards.
Alabama hosts Mississippi on Saturday.
